This week in history: West Palm Beach Fishing Club opens new headquarters

The West Palm Fishing Club is one of the oldest sport fishing clubs in the country. It was founded in 1934 and soon had a clubhouse meeting room at the Royal Worth Hotel — later known as the Pennsylvania Hotel — on South Flagler Drive. On Jan. 6, 1941, the club opened its new headquarters on Flagler Drive at Fifth Street.
